This is very beautiful! Great work!
I have a question, what do you mean by coffee painted paper? How do you achieve that?

First thank you and to answer your question...it's very simple,I take a cup of coffee (long,we drink espresso here but that wuoldn't be good) dipp the brush in it and paint the paper,wait for it to dry (or dry it with air drier) and do another coats until youget the tone you want,and that's it,it gives the paper a nice vintage tone. You can also use tea,wine and whatever else you can think of. Just remember to tape the paper to a rigid surface taping all along the edges,this way the paper will curl but than get flat again once dry (this is even if you just use water) Hope this helps:D
